Of course not, but even some Midlanders you can hear the "oi" even really softly.

You cheating New Englander!!!
You didn't make much effort to transcribe your pronuciation. I'm sure you say "Tareessa" and not "Te ress a"
And don't you guys say lasarrgna? My annoying housemate used to say it that way.

Maybe you're right... but in Worcestershire, I've never really noticed that.

Always. Damn the typical Reading glottal stop. I wince when I hear it and that's bloody often.

It's just so...argh!! 'Sah-uh-day.' Why can't you just pronounce the T? It makes me a bit upset really Do we have to destroy the language so?
Heh, my cousin from Reading never pronounces her t's and nor do any of her friends! It's really annoying! I was talking to her actually, she said she knows some people in year 12 from your school, small world!

You're right, it would sound more like tereessa. And for most Brits, tareesa.

I always remember that to imitate an American accent (more East coast), you have to remember to pronounce the r at the end of everything.
